Operation Build It Virtual Field Trip
The Operation Build It Virtual Field Trip gives students the tools to embrace DIY projects in their own lives and start making their dreams a reality, using inspiration from Home Depot’s Kids Workshops. Students are joined by creative and highly-skilled makers to learn how they can create an at-home DIY workshop and develop practical skills and knowhow to tackle challenges that are meaningful to them.
The companion Educator Guide provides interactive tools for bringing to life supply chains, exciting trade careers, and general knowhow that will empower students for a lifetime. Help students do more for themselves and their communities with a hands-on investigation into the Global Supply Chain.Download Educator Guide
